I don’t watch nooze. It’s bad enough, just reading it. But yesterday something piqued my curiosity and moved me to watch a few minutes of President Trump’s press briefing. Because I never watch these things, I had no idea what to expect (https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-hhs-inspector-general-is-biased-report-on-hospital-shortages-2020-4).
So I saw what I didn’t expect: some nonentity of a “reporter” trying to talk over the president of the United States. He just wouldn’t shut up. Like, Dude, who the hell are you? What kind of feral fool just keeps yakking away while the president is speaking? Who do these journalistic nimrods think they are?
How do you interview anyone if you won’t stop talking yourself? Many years ago, I was at a governor’s briefing. Those of us who had questions asked them–and listened to the answers. That’s how we were able to report on what the governor said. We were, I think, a dozen reporters. We didn’t just keep talking.
But that was then, this is now, and our free and independent press’ only mission in life is to damage Donald Trump and try to boost Democrats back into power. They want to do this because they’re idiots: no one with any more sense than God gave an umbrella stand wants Democrats in charge of anything.
It’s not only lousy reporting, to try to drown out the person you’re supposed to be interviewing. It’s also bad manners. To show that much disrespect for the president is shameful.
I admit I had, and have, no respect at all for the previous president; I don’t even like to type his name. But I’m not all over the airwaves, live, showing my disrespect.
Let them write what they please. But if they can’t behave themselves in public, then they shouldn’t be allowed out in public.
